Dear listeners!

Welcome to the course of Ukrainian!

The course of Ukrainian as a foreign language is obligatory for all foreign listeners that study in Ukraine.

Welcome to Ukrainian course for foreign citizens that decided to learn the Ukrainian language! Ukrainian is an elementary practical course for English speaking listeners, who chose distance learning at Sumy State University.

This introductory course does not cover the entire lexical and structural richness of the Ukrainian language. However, it can serve as an introduction to a deeper and more fundamental study of the Ukrainian language.

The course consists of eight modules that acquaint the listeners with the Ukrainian phonetic system, articulation of the sounds, peculiarities of stress and intonation as well as the basic grammar.

The phonetic and grammar material is introduced in small portions, each of which is presented under its own module. A module consists of units having the following structure: a lecture, a practice report, tests and simulations. The last two are based on the vocabulary of the present unit. Tasks are arranged according to the increasing degree of difficulties encountered by the student.

Read the content of the learning course сarefully. Pay attention to the number of modules that are planned for studying. You will need to do the appropriate number of simulations, tests, and practical tasks.
